The Retrode is the world’s best USB adapter for vintage video games. Play your 16-bit console games on your computer/cell phone/tablet/whatnot, using your original cartridges and controllers! 
 
 
What’s needed?
  • Game cartridges
  • Emulators for SNES/SFC and Genesis/Mega Drive: SNES9x, ZSNES, Gens, Fusion, …
  • A computer with a USB port, running any of the above (Windows/Linux/MacOS/*NIX)
  • A Retrode
 
The Retrode is for you if…
  • you like playing legacy video games on your PC, and doing so legally
  • you want to preserve your investment in these games, even after all hardware has expired
  • you want to back up your game progress, e.g. before replacing the cartridge battery
  • you like emulator cheats, but prefer to finish the boss on the real console
  • you simply think it’s cool to plug huge game cartridges into a PDA or cell phone
 
The Retrode is not for you if… you don’t see the difference between making private backup copies of games that you own, and downloading 10,000 ROMs from the internet.

Very good product. Sure, you can just download ROMs to play. However, this is worthwhile for 3 main reasons. 1) It is legal, 2) You technically get 4 USB converter ports (2 for Genesis, 2 for SNES), and 3) You can back up your game saves before your battery backup dies. Plus it's pretty compact and cool looking!

This is such a wonderful device. If you ever wanted to play your games legit on a pc or any usb device this is the way to go. With this unit you are able to play SNES/Super Famicom and MegaDrive/Genesis and even grab your precious game saves from it.
